No native app launcher has ever given me so much doubt before, I usually went straight to Nova, but OneUI can replace Nova + Sesame(both paid) in most occasions, and it looks really good and seamless.

Any performance/benefits difference you noticed besides Nova's typical customization?

Nova vs OneUI, You can see how many frames OneUI drops because of that blur effect, I'd say the case is closed until it gets improved.

Nova

OneUI

I stay with Nova for vertical scrolling in the app drawer and swipe left to Google. During the Pie beta program many of us asked for vertical scrolling but they didn't listen.

Oneui doesn't hide apps... Other than that I feel like they're close

OneUI also supports this fancy UI customization tool made by Samsung called Good Lock that I recently discovered. I've tested it and it works perfectly with my S10+.
You can download it from the Samsung Store if you're in one of the few available regions, or you can just install the APK manually.

I doubt this is unique to the plus but there should be a option in the Home Screen settings to hide apps from the app drawer, unless you were referring to something else?

Oneui home screen settings accessible by long pressing has a hide app option too!

Nova works great with Good Lock also. Good lock was actually available in 2018, I used it with a S9 Plus. It was disabled during the Pie Beta,but was updated yesterday to work with the stable pie release & the s10 plus

Since Pie I've had to give up on Nova and Tesla Unread

App notifications just don't work properly

Correct me if I am wrong, but one ui cannot swipe right into googlenow, nor can it lower the notification window by pulling down anywhere on the screen.

I love the idea of removing a 3rd party app, but Nova still seems to be King for my needs.

With the latest Beta, Nova no longer needs TeslaUnread for notifications. There are choices for None, Dynamic badges, Dots, Numeric Dots, or TeslaUnread and they work well on my S9 running Pie. Google Discover has been added with a download of Nova Google Companion.
